clown move

Hello, I just drove about 1300 miles, starting with 5 clown loaches. I did everything I could to keep the fish comfy. I bought a battery operated air pump attached to an air powered filter unit. I immediately put a water heater back in the bag when I arrived at the motel. I also did some good water changes. I even used stress coat and just a little ick medication (not much, because I know clowns are sensitive). But I lost all but one, and he nearly died. I'm knew I would lose a few fish. I hoped the clowns would do better.

I'll have to replace his friends as soon as I get a better setup. That's all for now.
